Gratitude for girlfriends and art in my home

1 min read

Who’s feeling tired of social distancing?!

I’m used to spending a ton of time alone in my studio and home, but lately, I’m craving a girls’ night out more than I thought possible. I’ve had a couple zoom meet-ups of course, but it’s not the same.

I’m dreaming of sitting on a restaurant patio, sipping a delicious cocktail with good friends and the feeling of sun on my face with a cool breeze off the Puget Sound. I'm hopeful this coming summer will be full of that!

In the meantime, I’m glad I have visual reminders of the amazing ladies in my life, some of whom are fellow artists. I love looking at the work I’ve collected over the years.

Art keeps us connected and sane when spending more time at home than usual.

This wall features work by 4 super talented women I'm lucky to call friends.
